The summer is here and with that comes insects and especially mosquitos. I don't dislike insects. I love them but when they decide to sting, it hurts, and it itches and nobody likes that sensation.
What makes most mainstream insect repellent harmful?
First of all, it's the amount of toxic ingredients they contain. Not only to the wearer's health but to the air and environment.
The most toxic being DEET. DEET (N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) is a chemical that was patented by the US Army as an effective mosquito repellent.
Studies have found that it can be harmful to the nervous system and countries including Canada and the US have banned products containing various levels of DEET. In Europe, they are slowly banning DEET products too.
DEET and why we shouldn't use it!
Let's face it, we need insects. Their numbers are dwindling and they are essential to our lives. Insects create the biological foundation for all ecosystems. They cycle nutrients, pollinate plants, disperse seeds, maintain soil structure and fertility, control populations of other organisms, and provide a major food source.
DEET will deter insects, yes but its incredibly harmful for them too. DEET is a pesticide intended to kill insects!
If DEET kills insect, imagine what it does to your internally as you breathe it in? Not only that, remember that whatever you put on your skin, will makes its way in too so for your health and safety there are other options that will not cost the earth and your health too.
What can you use instead?
We are thrilled to let you know that we have a natural option that works! I tried it on my little one (she's using it now at camp) and it's working well - let us introduces you to Incognito.
Incognito does not use DEET but instead of diverged since then that there is a better for the environment mosquito repellent called PMD:
Deet has historically been the go to product for insect repellents, recent studies have found that Deet does not work on all types of mosquitoes and thus is no longer the best mosquito repellent. PMD incognito mosquito repellent has been found to work effectively on all mosquitoes species tested to date.
Incognito uses the purest form of plant based PMD available on the market & is also one the best midge repellents. The PMD we use in incognito insect repellent is derived from Java citronella and formulated over many years with a secret unique process, which in clinical testing demonstrated elongated efficacy compared to other insect repellent. Although 100% plant-based, in all you cannot get a stronger insect & mosquito repellent.
